About

After an acclaimed debut in our intimate new home of Peckham Rye Park, South London’s festival of independent music, food and drink returns for the fourth edition on Bank Holiday Sunday 26th May 2019.

We will be programming another weighty lineup across the board featuring many more of the most esteemed and significant names in house, disco and good time party music, all alongside a well-considered local food and drink offering.

In order to preserve the intimate nature of GALA, we will be keeping the capacity and site footprint almost exactly the same for 2019’s event. We are anticipating high levels of demand for next summer so please ensure you get your tickets early to avoid any disappointment.

How 2018’s edition went down…

Bradley Zero:
“GALA just rewrote the rulebook on how to do a London day festival. Flawless operation, incredible sound, staging and smiles all round.”

Midland:
“GALA’s sound and vibe were the best I’ve experienced at a London day festival.”

Mixmag:
“Banging sound, cute site layout, sizzling weather, perfect amount of people, minimal queues and a super loose vibe. Or was it all a sun-kissed dream?”

Ransom Note:
“You regularly stumble into the same hurdles at inner city festivals; levels are too quiet, the noise from each stage spills into each other, the crowd management is poor, not enough bar space… the list could literally go on forever. GALA handled these aspects of event management very well for me and exceeded expectations.”

The Tung:
“In comparison with other London festivals in previous years, GALA’s sound seemed to me significantly louder and crisper. There was little to no sound-bleed between stages once you were in front of them, and it was entirely possible to have an immersive experience.”
